The V400, was limited to only 10 examples was very competitively priced at only £75,950 for the V8 Vantage V400 Coupe and £79,950 for the V8 Vantage V400 Roadster (plus road tax). This made the V400 the least expensive new Aston Martin for a very long time until the title was taken away by the ill-fated Cygnet.
V8 Vantage V400 by HWM
(2008 - 2009)
HWM are the oldest and most established Aston Martin dealer, selling the cars since 1951. Almost every post-war model of Aston have been sold by HWM including the ultimate AM, the DB4GT Zagato. In 2008, and for the first time, HWM are offered their first 'Limited Edition', the V400. The V400 was based on the 2008MY 4.3 V8 Vantage but with the engine modified to the 400 bhp 'N400' state of tune. A number of optional extras were fitted as standard including heated seats, satellite navigation, 19” lightweight sports alloy wheels with silver finish, cruise control, Bluetooth, DBS-style clear rear lights and numbered sill plates. The rather garish nose to tail racing stripes were thankfully optional.
